Total hilarity. Audience involvement in that perfect pocket, keeping flow fresh and loose. The performances are out of this world. So much fun, with just the perfect amount of pain. 5 bags of popcorn. Ten out of ten. ... full review
LINDSAY BEAMISH certified reviewer June 29, 2019
I absolutely loved it. Gemma and Amrita were masterful onstage, seamlessly weaving between structure and improvisation and absurdity and heartbreak. The show was both broad and profoundly nuanced at once. I would like to see it multiple times to see how the work changes each night depending on the audience interaction and contribution. ... full review
CAMI HAMILTON certified reviewer June 27, 2019
There is almost more joie de vivre in The Living Room than one stage can contain. Absurd. Macabre. Fiesty. Sexy. Silly. Poignant. Adult and Childish. Sly. Hillarious. This show made me laugh and made me cry - then I stopped. Those in the first three rows will get wet.... full review
ANONYMOUS certified reviewer June 24, 2019
A touching and funny rumination on death, sex, violence, and mourning of loved ones mediated by two eccentric characters gently carrying you through the range of emotions on those topics. Be prepared to have a respectful sense of humor about death and loss. Audience participation is highly encouraged. ... full review

I would watch any show devised by Amrita and Gemma. Intelligent, compassionate, HILARIOUS, boundary-pushing and full of surprises, this show will leave your cheeks sore from laughing and your tender heart opened wide. They've used the power of comedy and clown to do what it does in it's purest form: reminded us how connected we all are in the universal human experience of life (and death) and love. That we are more alike than different. And this is truly how comedy can change the world. It's powerful, it's palpable, and we are in great hands with Amrita and Gemma, who challenge us throughout the show, without ever making us feel unsafe (except in a fun way). ... full review

An hour of fun and silliness punctuated by moments of stillness and heartbreak. Amrita and Gemma are excellent clowns that took great care to make sure that the entire audience was getting what they needed.... full review

TANVEER BHAURLA certified reviewer June 21, 2019
This was a great show!! They did an absolutely amazing job transitioning from humor to sadness and I am amazed at how effortlessly they did this. They created a community with their audience and provided a space for us all to connect and grieve over the loss of our loved ones. Truly an amazing show.... full review
HANITA DHILLON certified reviewer June 21, 2019
I didn't know whether to cry or laugh, laugh then cry or do both at the same time. This piece was wonderfully executed, expressing the emotions and deep absurdities that come with loss. The spontaneity in humor and on the fly commentary was the perfect touch to adding some lightheartedness to the subject. Both did an excellent job at representing the chaos and denial that comes with loss, the surface level experience of loss and how we respond/connect with it. My second time watching the piece and I know I will be back for more! ... full review

This was the most powerful theatre experience I’ve ever been to. It was genius and broke every kind of wall you can imagine , audience + performer, alive + dead ... I left in such a heightened state of awareness , it was basically a mystical experience, a hilarious and tragic epiphany.... full review
